Leaky Gut and Inflammation

"Leaky gut is a name used to describe intestinal or bowel hyperpermeability, which simply means that the tight junction between the cells that line the intestine have opened up sufficiently to allow ‘leakage’ resulting in an altered or damaged bowel lining. Some researchers have also found a relationship with acute and chronic diseases such as systemic inflammatory response syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, type 1 diabetes, allergies, asthma, and autism."
